"It's a wild dance floor there at the molecular level." - Roald Hoffmann (winner - 1981 Nobel Prize in Chemistry)

Chemistry examines the structure and behavior of matter at the atomic and molecular level. There is both a subtlety and a cleverness to the art. Its practical applications are many, from medicine to plastics and from our planet's atmosphere to alternative forms of energy production.
